Starring: Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen, Boyd Holbrooke

Directed by: James Mangold

MINOR SPOILERS

Very few times we get a comic book movie that not only defines the genre, it elevates it to a whole other level. The Dark Knight did this, as did The Avengers (and some could say Winter Soldier or Guardians of the Galaxy, or really any Marvel Studios major release). Well, we can now add another film to that list, because I can honestly say that Logan, the final film to star Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, is one of those films. It’s somber and hopeful, as well as violent and heartfelt. For a final bow, Jackman and director James Mangold pulled out all the stops, and crafted a film that doesn’t feel like anything else in the stable of X-Men films by Fox. Read the rest of this entry

The Man Called Logan

cuaiczwueaaid_w-jpg-largeAt long last, we finally have some information on the final Wolverine movie. It’s been some time since we had any real news about the movie, and with the March release date coming up, many of us were wondering if we’d EVER get a trailer, pictures, or even a synopsis on Hugh Jackman’s final outing as Logan.

One Final “SNIKT!”

Hugh-Jackman-Muscles-Claws-in-The-WolverineA day that I’ve been dreading has finally arrived: Hugh Jackman has announced his retirement from the role of Wolverine. Yes, the third Wolverine film will be his last. While it’s not that surprising that the 47 year old actor is tired of getting into peak physical condition every few years, I’m really bummed out by this. To me, Jackman was the first actor to really nail the comic character he played. Before Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man, before Charlie Cox’s Daredevil, before Christian Bale’s Batman, there was Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine. Yes, he was a foot taller than the character, but Jackman was able to tap into the rage, ferocity, and nobleness of Logan, and introduced him to a whole new audience. Read the rest of this entry
